How to install iOS 15.4 public beta

Some exciting features have been announced for iOS 15.4, the next version of Apple’s mobile operating system, including the ability to use Face ID with a mask and access some new emojis. If you can’t wait, you can test them in the first public beta currently available, assuming you risk encountering potential bugs. Here we walk you through the steps to install the software.

Before we begin, our general caveat about installing unfinished beta software is this: These versions may appear stable for general use, but they may contain some bugs. Depending on the apps you use, your experience may differ from others. Finally, if you decide to install it, we recommend backing up your device’s data in case things go wrong.

Also, some new features may not be available depending on the phone you have. For example, according to this 9to5MacIf you don’t have an iPhone 12 or newer, you cannot use the “Use Face ID with Mask” feature.
